I was right in front of you
Standin' in clear view
I had so much to show
I was like an open book
You never even looked
So much I wanted you to know
The deepest part of me
You never tried to reach
It would have been so easy

All you had to do was pay some attention
All you had to do was look past the surface
But you never noticed much of anything
All you had to do was just try to listen
All you ever did was just catch a glimpse and
The tragedy is that you left so much unseen
You left so much unseen

You know my favorite color's blue
When I wore something new
And my favorite song
You didn't know my biggest fear
Was that you didn't care
That this ain't the life I want
To be right by your side
And have this great divide
We were close but so far

All you had to do was pay some attention
All you had to do was look past the surface
But you never noticed much of anything
All you had to do was just try to listen
All you ever did was just catch a glimpse and
The tragedy is that you left so much unseen
You left so much unseen

All that ever really mattered was overlooked

All you had to do was pay some attention
All you had to do was look past the surface
All you had to do was pay some attention
All you had to do was look past the surface
But you never noticed much of anything
All you had to do was just try to listen
All you ever did was just catch a glimpse and
The tragedy is that you left so much unseen
You left so much unseen
You left so much unseen
